Find Holiday accommodation in France

  • Autumn sunshine, city breaks and half-term getaways

    With warm sunshine flooding the hills, pastures, lakes and beaches of France, this is the perfect time for an Autumn getaway to enjoy the relaxing peace and quiet of late season destinations. And the bonus of great value accommodation in both countryside and cities!

    Of course, Paris in the sunshine is hard to resist – but try other beautiful cities in France for a long weekend or mid-week break. Romance is in the air in Annecy in the Haute-Savoie, with clear air, lakeside strolls and mountain views, also in Carcassonne, where winding medeival lanes take you on a trip back in time.

    Hop on a train to visit sunny Avignon, the city of the popes, Bordeaux for the wine harvest or Tours for the Loire chateaux. For history there is Chartres, while for glamour and beaches, Nice is hard to beat.

    At French Connections, you can find your destination, choose your accommodation, book your ferry, train or plane and even tick off travel insurance and currency exchange. Start with our complete guide to the best City Breaks in France.

    For a family break at half-term in late October, the iconic Disneyland Paris is perfect. Why not plan a holiday combining the charms of Disneyland with a taste of the enticing land of France by renting a holiday home nearby? Get special offers, holiday rentals, hotels and more in our guide to Disneyland Paris.

    Families will also enjoy a city break or a relaxing stay in the French countryside.

  • Lonely Planet rates Bordeaux world’s top city

    Bordeaux

    Experts at travel guide publisher and website Lonely Planet have just announced their top destinations for 2017 in a ‘Best in Travel’ guide. In the Top City category, the favourite choice of cities to visit next year is Bordeaux, France.

    In terms of travel, Lonely Planet loves Bordeaux right now because the new LGV Sud-Ouest line, due for completion in mid- 2017, will connect the city with Europe’s high- speed train network and cut travel time from Paris to just two hours. In terms of attractions, LP says, ‘ The recently opened Cité du Vin continues the impressive redevelopment of the Garonne riverfront with a state-of-the-art wine-lovers’ experience, and the city’s gastronomic revolution keeps building on its own success.’

    We already love this city for its great climate and rich history. As capital of the most famous wine region in the world, Bordeaux offers all the culture and shopping you'd expect to find in a large, sophisticated city plus the added benefits of its association with the centuries-old wine trade.

    Bordeaux is full of elegant 18th-century buildings and wide avenues. These, along with the neoclassical architecture and well-tended parks, combine to give the city a certain grandeur. Yet the centre is easily explored on foot, has world class restaurants and wines, excellent museums and lively nightlife. When you fancy a change of pace, beaches are close by and if you want a day trip to the city, Bordeaux is very accessible from the popular Gironde and Dordogne regions.

    We have a great range of places to stay around Bordeaux, so start browsing our accommodation and city guide now to plan your trip to this world class city.
